Don't support Windows Vista. Very few have switched over and most of those who have switched had issues and problems with the OS and it slowed down their computer. Drop 98 support, its old and if people haven't switched over yet, they should just install Linux if their computers can't handle it. Please make a Linux port. There are still no good N64 emulators and many people are switching over to Linux. Please support Windows 2000/XP and Linux. Thanks.

kte is bang on, it would be appreciated if you could keep windows 2000 as a supported OS. Windows Vista is still awaiting it's first full update and according to the article ( it will not be ready until November 2007. Goodness knows what that will mean for developing on it - but you guys will know best...

I think that that the team has to support only:
Windows XP (all editions)
Windows Vista (including 64-bit editions, many pepole use it, including me) ;)
The reason is: Old OSes are usually used by users with weak computer configurations.

Personally, I think a project like this one should KEEP 9x support.

1 **everyone** has a copy of 98 kicking around.

2 Old computers are plentiful (only get more plentiful as Vista takes over)

3 Since the computers are older, the old 9x installations have already proven their durability (I can't believe EVERYONE overlooked this fact!)

4 Arcade cabinets are DIY projects-- DIY projects use whatever is available-- I ain't buying new crap for a DIY hobby project to play N64 games.

Now, it isn't like I honestly *deserve* a vote (first time here actually), but my voice is shared by more than you think.

If supporting 9x is a *burden*, then make a FINAL version for those systems... perhaps even continue plugin support for them as well.

My take on it is that anyone still running 9x **MUST** be doing something right. Removing it for the sake of optimizations should ultimately lead to a splitting of the project into separate projects, one 9x the other NT. Which is why I say make a final version for 9x... makes everyone as happy as they will ever get...

And I include Windows 2000 with the XP & Vista version... eventually, I foresee the W2K version going the way of the 9x version, but not for another 2-3 years at least.

If you cannot maintain the 9x line, just pop out a final stable 9x version and archive it everywhere.

Keep W2K compatibility in the current builds.

thanks for reading this post.
